    About me

    Originally based in Manchester, I spent 10 years working as a jobbing acting before relocating to Norfolk to raise my family. Whilst here, I trained to teach A level Performance and Drama and also directed a number of youth productions for Far East theatre. I'm currently Artistic-director of fEAST Theatre and co-produced 'SALT', and 'INTO THIN AIR in 2018. Currently in pre-production for a Christmas Show in 2019 and a 10th anniversary tour in 2020 for fEAST.

    I also work as a freelance theatre practitioner and run workshops in drama, devising and movement.
